Four local high school graduates are playing sports professionally across the country.

Periodically, MarshfieldAreaSports.com will update readers on their exploits.

Daulton Varsho

Varsho off to good start
Daulton Varsho has started his professional baseball career with a bang.

Varsho, a Chili native and 2014 graduate of Marshfield High School, started his pro career on June 22 with the Hillsboro Hops, a short-season Class A affiliate of the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Varsho was drafted with the 68th pick overall and first in the Competitive Balance Round B following the second round of the Major League Baseball Draft by Arizona on June 12. Within 10 days he signed a contract and was off to Hillsboro, Ore., to play for the Hops.

Varsho collected his first hit in his third game and had a home run and five RBIs on July 5 against Salem-Keizer.

In 13 games in the Northwest League (through July 9), Varsho is batting a team-best .353 going 18-for-51 at the plate with two home runs, 10 RBIs, four doubles and seven runs scored.

Hillboro’s season runs through Sept. 3.

Elliot Ashbeck

Ashbeck remains out
Elliot Ashbeck, a 2012 Marshfield High School graduate who went on to play collegiately at Bradley University, remains out of action after suffering an arm injury last summer.

Ashbeck was a 16th round draft choice by the San Diego Padres in 2015 and pitched in 23 games in the minor leagues in the 2015 and 2016 seasons before his injury sidelined him while with Fort Wayne (Ind.) in the Midwest League last May.

Jordan Zimmermann

Zimmermann off to slow start
Jordan Zimmerann, a 2004 Auburndale High School graduate, is in his second season pitching for the Detroit Tigers.

The right-handed pitcher is 5-7 this season with a 5.87 earned-run average in 17 games, all starts. He has 67 strikeouts in 95 innings pitched and has not won a game since June 3, when he gave up just one run in six innings to beat Cleveland.

Zimmermann, who played collegiately at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, was a second-round draft pick by the Washington Nationals in 2007 and made his Major League debut in 2009. He went 70-50 in seven seasons with the Nationals, earning spots on the National League all-star teams in 2013 and 2014. He signed as a free agent with Detroit prior to the 2016 season and is 14-14 in 36 games with the Tigers over the past two seasons.

Ethan Finlay

Finlay in sixth MLS season
Ethan Finlay, a 2008 graduate of Marshfield High School, is in the middle of his sixth season with the Columbus Crew of Major League Soccer.

In 17 games this season, including 13 starts, Finlay has one goal and one assist for the Crew. His goal came in the season opener on March 4 against Chicago, and he had an assist against New York City on April 29.

Columbus is in sixth place in the Eastern Conference at 9-10-1 and is just two points out of fourth place. The Crew has 14 games remaining in the season, which ends Oct. 22 at New York City FC.

He missed two games earlier this season due to injury before returning the starting lineup May 31. Finlay started his 100th game of his career on July 1 against Atlanta.

The Marawood Conference announced its all-conference teams for the South Division for both baseball and softball.

BASEBALL
Stratford senior pitcher/shortstop Cole Hoffman was named the Player of the Year and was one of three Tigers to earn unanimous first-team honors on the 2017 All-Marawood Conference South Division Baseball Team.

Hoffman was fifth in the conference in hitting with a .405 average (15 of 37) and tied for first in runs scored with 15. He also hit one home run, had 12 RBIs and six stolen bases, and was 3-1 pitching with a 2.78 earned-run average and 19 strikeouts in 22 2/3 innings.

Joining Hoffman on the first team for Stratford were sophomore Kade Ehirke and senior Lucas Heidmann.

Heidmann had a 2.47 ERA and a 2-1 record on the mound for Stratford, while Ehrike was second in the conference in batting at .452 (14-for-31) with one home run, seven RBIs and 15 runs scored to tie Hoffman for the conference lead.

“Cole’s offense really made teams stay away from pitching him anything over the plate,” Stratford coach Brad Grube said. “He did a nice job as our shortstop and pitched for us as well. Lucas was our team leader in ERA and did a really good job keeping hitters off-balance.”

Auburndale sophomore Colton Wright was also a unanimous first-team pick after hitting .333 with six RBIs and eight runs scored. Wright was 1-1 pitching with a 1.77 ERA and 19 strikeouts and 23 2/3 innings pitched.

Auburndale seniors Logan Willfahrt and Caleb Weinfurter, and Stratford senior Dakota Singer and sophomore Dylan Schoenherr were second-team selections.

“(Colton) is a future player of the year candidate in the conference,” Auburndale coach Mark Brost said. “Caleb had the best changeup in the conference, and Logan was the best blocking catcher I’ve ever coached.”

Earning honorable mention status for Auburndale were senior Dylan Altmann and junior Cam Ertl, and for Stratford were junior Mark Handrick and sophomore Lance Heidmann.

Weinfurter was 2-2 with a 1.64 ERA and 21 strikeouts and 21 1/3 innings pitched, while Willfahrt hit .250 with seven runs scored, seven RBIs and tied for the conference high with nine stolen bases.

Singer batted .289 with a league-high 14 RBIs, while Schoenherr tied for fourth in RBIs with 12 and hit .375 for the Tigers.

“Dakota and Kade were offensive threats and both players did a good job hitting to all fields and working pitchers to help our team succeed,” Grube said. “I am really looking forward to having Mark and Lance, among the others, back, and I will miss this senior group.”

SOFTBALL
Stratford senior catcher Brittany Bredeman was a unanimous first-team pick and teammate Kiana Weiler, a junior pitcher, were first-team selections to the 2017 All-Marawood Conference South Division Softball Team.

Bredemann was seventh in the conference in batting average as she hit an even .500 (21-for-42) with a conference-best 10 doubles, one home run and seven stolen bases. She was second in the conference in runs scored with 22 and third in RBIs with 18 out of the leadoff spot in the order for the Tigers.

Weiler went 8-3 with a 1.90 ERA, striking out 58 with only two walks in 62 2/3 innings to help Stratford to a tie for second with Marathon in the conference standings at 9-3. She also hit .462 with 16 RBIs.

“Brittany (four-time all-conference player) limited other teams’ running games and short ball games, called all the pitches on her own, and is a very smart softball player,” Stratford coach Mandy Pankratz said. “Offensively she was a spark as our lead-off batter and provided conference for the rest of our team.

“Kiana was our workhorse on the mound. Her command was outstanding and she trusts her defense when she needs to. Her offensive numbers also really improved this year.”

Among the second-team selections were Auburndale junior Hannah Bolder, and Stratford seniors Sammy Griesbach, Val Liccardi, and Sammy Kaiser.

Bolder hit .433 (13-for-30) with 10 RBIs and 11 runs scored as the Apaches went 6-6 and took fourth place in the Marawood South standings.

Griesbach was fourth in the conference in batting average at .538 (21-for-39) with 13 runs scored. Kaiser hit .361 with a home run, 14 RBIs and 12 runs scored, and Licciardi hit .464 with 18 runs scored and 10 RBIs for Stratford.

“Griesbach really put a lot of pressure on the other team defensively and improved her soft slap (batting) this season, which made her that much more difficult to defend,” Pankratz said. “Kaiser had a great year in centerfield and had some huge at-bats (in the No. 4 position). Val was our vocal leader and always keeps her teammates in the game with her positive support and enthusiasm.”

Stratford junior Cassidy Vanderleest and senior Shalynn Griesmer, and Auburndale seniors Brooke Anderson and Jenna Ertl were among the conference’s honorable mention selections.

AUBURNDALE – Everything Spencer did in the first inning turned to gold during its WIAA Division 3 baseball regional final at Auburndale High School on Wednesday.

A missed fly ball, seven hits and two walks turned into a 10-run explosion and the Rockets held on from there, defeating Auburndale 13-8 to win the regional title.

Spencer (11-9) moves on to the D-3 sectionals Tuesday at Crivitz. The Rockets will play Iola-Scandinavia (15-6) in one semifinal between two No. 4 seeds at 1:30 p.m. A pair of No. 1 seeds, Coleman (23-2) and Neenah St. Mary Catholic (23-0), will play in the other semifinal at 10 a.m., with the championship game at 4 p.m. for a berth in the 2017 WIAA State Spring Baseball Tournament in Appleton on the line.

Hunter Luepke and Caden Schillinger each had two RBIs, and Lukas Ellefson had a pair of hits in the opening inning as the Rockets knocked around Auburndale starter Caleb Weinfurter.

Auburndale came back with three runs in the bottom of the first inning on a two-run single by Colton Wright and a sacrifice fly from Weinfurter, and added two more in the second as Cam Ertl singled and scored on a pair of errors and Weinfurter walked with the bases loaded to make it 10-5.

From there, the game stabilized a bit.

Schillinger replaced starter Dom Wichlacz on the mound with two outs in the second and was able to keep Auburndale (10-8) from getting the big inning it needed to get back in the game. Schillinger allowed a run in the third and two in the sixth but was able to wiggle out of further trouble in each frame.

Schillinger plated Wichlacz with an RBI groundout in the third, and Luepke doubled and scored on an error in the fifth against Wright, who replaced Weinfurter after four innings, to put Spencer up 12-6.

The Rockets scored their final run in the sixth as Auburndale committed two of its seven errors in the inning and Luepke knocked in Wichlacz with a fielder’s choice groundball.

Auburndale’s final two runs came in the sixth on RBI singles from Weinfurter and Ryan Isaacson, who had two of the Apaches’ seven hits.

Schillinger issued a walk and another runner reached on an error before he closed out the victory to send Spencer to sectionals.
